Topic: Dopamine - The Maestro of Motivation, Productivity and Mental Health

Whether fascination or fixation, distraction or disruption, dopamine is a cultural phenomenon and the hidden puppeteer behind productivity. The star of the neurochemical stage and master of reward and pleasure, dopamine, the productivity powerhouse, determines how we think, move and work. It is the brain’s go-to transmitter turning intentions into action giving the “push” to get things done. Learn motivation maneuvers that shift perceptions and focus from the cost and challenge to the reward and benefits. With brain balancing, procrastination and boredom generate creativity, critical thinking, and the "Aha's" that ignite innovation. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • Four tips to prevent emotional hijacking to balance the brain to maintain focus and attention for “EXCELerated” performance.
  • Seven detox strategies to rewire, reset and retrain the brain to override cognitive overload, procrastination, and digital dopamine addiction.
  • Learn mindset mastery methods that rewire, reset, and retrain the brain to harness the power of habit and conscious choice.
  • Strategies to motivate the unmotivated, reclaim employee engagement, and make "work" invigorating.
